Paint the outcome you desire

If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal. Norman Vincent Peale

You control your thoughts and therefore control your actions. But for these thoughts to turn into things you must be at a high vibrational level. You’re at a high vibrational level when you think positive thoughts, feel joy in your being, are happy, feel love and optimism!  Then you simply leave the ‘how’ to God or the Universe.

That does the trick!

So the steps are:

  1. Picture what you’d like
  2. Stay joyous, happy and positive.
  3. Leave the rest to providence.
  4. Enjoy!

Where’s the fruit?

Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.H. Jackson Browne


If we don’t stretch ourselves, who will? How will we grow?

We can go out on a limb when we challenge our personal concepts.

How do we view us? Confident, liked, loved, capable and nice or the quite the opposite? Where and when do we short-sell us?

If we’re willing to look deeper into our self, gaining self-knowledge, understanding why we act or react the way we do, then that awareness, not a self-judgment, leads to direct contact with our inner, confident and capable self.

Then we become naturally capable of going out on a limb and taking a risk, growing and grabbing a handful of that desirable fruit!

Happiness is a present attitude

Happiness is a present attitude–not a future condition. – Hugh Prather

It’s all here, it’s all now.

3 words, Happiness, Present and Attitude. These 3 words sum it all up!

Happiness is what we all want, what we all seek. Happiness is being content and joyful with what you are and what you have.

Present is the only time we’ve got, Now. We can only experience happiness in the present moment.

Attitude, the right kind is what we need to handle any situation in life and to stay happy!

Combine the 3 together and you have the making of a fulfilling life!

We must want to change

God changes not what is in people, until they change what is in themselves. – The Koran

Why is it that we always have such rich suggestions for others :)? 

Like Gandhi once said, ‘You must be the change, you want to see in the world’. We are only responsible for our own-selves. We can only change us.

As we start to do that, our world sets itself right. We’re less likely to have relationship problems. We’re happier and more fulfilled.

What we truly want

Ultimately, contentment is more a shift in attitude than a change in circumstances. – Linda Dillow


What do we truly want and where are we headed? These questions are at the heart of all our desires. When we buy things or undertake any life action based on our desires, we are really trying to uncover ourselves. We’re trying to understand and comprehend our place in the Universe. Now there’s a more direct way, a way that can be more fulfilling and joyous.

And that is to be more conscious of what you do, what you desire and why……

You’ve heard of prime numbers but have you heard of the 2 prime questions or the 2 Prime Quests!? They are:

  1. Who Am I: The quest towards self-knowledge. What keeps me going? Why? What do I really seek? It’s a never ending process to uncover bits of yourself. It’s possible to be very effective in this quest if we’re conscious of our driving motivations.
  2. Why am I here: A quest towards understanding our place in the Universe. Why are things the way they are? Here you try and understand how you fit into the grand scheme of things…….

So what does this have to do with the quote above? When we begin to know ourselves and our place, a certain contentment starts to replace the constant drive to get something or get someplace. The quest to achieve continues but in a very different way………….

Recommendation: Finding Your Life Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

Improve your life on every front!

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind. – William James (1842 – 1910)

Which is why our thoughts, all our thoughts are super important. If you frown upon someone’s antics or scowl at a bad driver, whose life are you affecting? Instead notice your reaction, that’s the key. Notice and alter, become aware and change, this ought to be our daily motto!

Our thoughts, especially the persistent ones, shape our day and eventually our lives. So choose the thoughts that work to your advantage, alter your attitude and notice the miracle that you create! Zig Zagler once said if someone asks you how you’re doing, don’t just say ‘Great’, ‘Ok’ or ‘Could be better’, instead say something like: “Feeling great and working on feeling FANTASTIC!!”
